I made this cute Littlest Pet Shop snail cake topper yesterday and I will be using it to decorate my nieces birthday cake along with some flowers and leaves. I used one of my daughtes LPS snails to make it as close as possible like the original, only a lot bigger. I have used modeling paste for it and you can see more photos of the snail in the gallery.
OMG! totally cute!! =D
How Tall is this? I’m trying to judge, is this a 9″ round cake? Thanks
vicki tran: No I used gum paste/modelling paste. I only have some photos of the process in my gallery
I love the snail, I am planning a LPS party for my daughter. Did you use chocolate clay to make the snail? Can you show me how please? Thank you.
oh how cute you are very talented
Thank a lot:) I will try out this weekend.
Hope i can do a nice birthday for my daughter next month.
Shirley: A nice firm cake gives you the best to work with. If a cake is to soft and very spongy it makes it hard to get the fondant all smooth and perfect on the cake. Yes cakes needs to be crumb coated with buttercream to seal in all crumbs and getting a very smooth surface for the fondant.
That a lovely cake 🙂
what type of cake should i use if i want to cover w fondant? before put the fondant must cover the cake w butter cream first?
hope to heard from you.
Whaaa??? How did you do that?!?!
You are truly talented Louise 🙂 That is the cutest topper too!
its pretty wonderful!
Thank you so much 🙂 I may add some text to the photos in the gallery with the LPS snail, only you will have to wait a bit for it.
Evan & Kelly: I used some pink lustre dust. I brushed it on two times on the day I made it and then the next day, made it even more shiny. I used a soft brush and really worked the lustre dust onto the shell.
aribian girl: yes you could eat it, only with the caution of a high sugar rush afterwards. There were a tooth pick in the body to hold the head and that would have to be removed first before eating.
Dhanya & jeannie & Denise: modeling paste=250gm fondant and 1 tsp. of tylo powder. It can be mixed wiht a little gumpaste to make it more flexible.
WOW!!!!!!!! God bless you!!! How do you color modeling paste(do you start out with white chocolate paste (modeling chocolate)1st?)or is it fondant combined with gumpaste? thank you!!!!! for always sharing!!!
